Volunteer Opportunities

Please remember that all volunteers in HISD need to be registered through VIPS. If you had an active VIPS account during the 2016-2017 school year and have registered as a River Oaks Elementary volunteer, just present an ID at the front desk to be re-activated this year. If you did not have an active VIPS account in the 2016-2017 school year (at any HISD campus) or if you were not registered as a ROE volunteer last year, please register at www.houstonisd.org/vips. For more information, click here.


Volunteer Needs for PTO Committees and Events

We have many volunteer opportunities throughout the year with various commitment levels that can fit your work and family’s schedule. The PTO offers special project committees (for example, Development, Spring Carnival, Books Fairs) and committees with ongoing needs through the year (for example, Nature Center, School Library, and ROE Spirit Store).

Please consider sharing your time with River Oaks Elementary for one or more of these opportunities. Please sign up online at https://cwsclients.wufoo.com/forms/roe-pto-volunteer-opportunity-signup/ if you are interested in any of these opportunities.   If you have questions about volunteer opportunities, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Erin Moses or Maria Franke, at volunteers@riveroakspto.org.   We would be happy to answer any questions you have and we look forward to working with you!  If you have any special skills, employment or interests you would like to share as a resource, please let us know.
